Research Interests

My research focuses on two main areas:

1) Robust brain state decoding methods: I work on novel machine learning methods for robust single-trial brain state decoding in the field of brain-computer interface research. Specifically, my work focuses on approaches to capture and monitor the functional role of oscillatory brain states.

2) Clinical BCI application in post-stroke motor rehabilitation: The above described methods are utilized for a brain-state dependent hand motor training for stroke rehabilitation.
